Michigan is starting to make's it's nasty switch to Fall, so the weather is bouncing back and forth. This evening, it was rainy and cool. This was the perfect way to end our night!
Now, let me tell you how EASY this was to make!!! Slice some onions, throw in a couple herbs, pour in some water, WINE, and bouillon cubes.......and you're good to go! Seriously....it's that easy! I stopped on the way home and picked up a fresh loaf of french bread, quickly sliced some cheese when I got home and stuck my soup in the oven in a ramekin under the broiler. Done! Dinner was served!
I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
French Onion Soup
3-4 Sweet Yellow Onions, thinly sliced into rings
1/2 tsp. Pepper
2 sprigs of fresh thyme
1 bay leaf
7 cups of water
7 beef bouillon cubes
1 cup of white wine
Gruyere Cheese (or swiss or provolone will do)
Place the onions into your slow cooker.
Sprinkle the pepper over the top and lay the 2 sprigs of thyme and bay leaf on top.
(Isn't that pretty?!!!!)
Now, pour the water and wine over the top and tuck your bouillon cubes into the liquid.
Cook on LOW for 7-9 hours or on HIGH for 3-5 hours.
When you are ready to serve your soup, fill your ramekin just over 3/4 of the way full of soup.
Place some bread on top.
And top that with Cheese.
Place your ramekins on a cookie sheet and put in the oven under the broiler for around 5 minutes.
(Check on it frequently so it doesn't burn!)
And there you have it!
